My kids have kept their newly received squinkies carefully socked away in their rooms. My little M was SO EXCITED last year when the "boy aisle" at the store had squinkies for him. It is a little strange, but I suppose the marketing is specific to each kid to try and up sales, so who knows. They have played so much with these little things, I actually really like them. We don't have any of the holders or houses, so they made all sorts of little huts for a village all over the table. They had so much fun with them. I'm a lot like you though, especially with toys from happy meals and the like. If they haven't been played with for a while and keep getting left all over the house, they myseteriously disappear and usually neither child even notices.

T. made a cardboard box house for her Squinkies! They are cute, I agree, and a little addictive.
